Pray for Croatia

Get ready Croats, Europeans and other people are coming to enjoy your coast. Every summer the Croatian Adriatic Coast is visited by thousands and thousands of vacationers.
1) Let us pray that the Croatian economy would capture, retain and wisely invest the tourist money. Let this year be an extra blessing for legitimate business throughout the land.
2) Let us pray for the tourist. May they have rest from their labors, enjoy their families and benefit from God’s creation.
3) Lord, release strategies to the churches - how to reach these tourist with the Gospel. We pray for labors for this special mission field. May the churches in the coastal towns and villages seek out ways to open their doors to the tourist.
4) May this be a summer when many tourist take a vacation and see their lives changed forever.

Summer is also a time for Christian youth and children camps, and the Croatian churches know how to put together summer camps.
5) Let us pray for the directors and volunteers. Lord, may they be chosen and inspired by You. May these workers have the love of Jesus for these children and the anointing of the Holy Spirit to minister transformation in their lives.
6) Let us pray for the finances so the camps can be conducted efficiently. Money for those children that can’t pay.
7) Let us pray for the Christian young people as they gather with other Christian youth. Many are from non-Christian homes or they are the only Christian in their school. May they be encouraged to live pure and holy in their environment.
8) We pray that the Christian youth would invite their lost school mates and extended family members.
9) We want to thank the Lord that Croats have the freedom to have these youth camps.

April 16, 2011 ZAGREB: Tens of thousands of people protested in Croatia on Saturday, a day after a UN court handed down heavy war crimes sentences for two ex-generals seen by many Croats as heroes.
10) Weather the Croats are right or wrong in the above matter is not the main concern; I just felt that we should pray that Croatia will put the past behind them. Pray that Croatians will ask forgiveness for their wrongs and not boast in divisive victories. May Croatia proceed with an intent to bless the nations.
Psalm 10:3 For the wicked boasts of his heart’s desire; He blesses the greedy and renounces the LORD.
Psalm 34:2 My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

[Personal Note] I do not favor international courts. Countries should judge their own or countries should judge those they capture. International courts can assume god-like status.
